    I was expecting something different from a classic arcade game... but I was wrong. It's a classic arcade game. Too bad.. Not really for me. :(

    For you, and everyone "shocked", "surprised" about how this gameplay looks like - check some onboard from first GRiD.



    This game is going to be something like this. It's a game for people, who wants to have fun driving nice cars in nice places. And that's the greatest thing about it. It's not a sim, you can relax, margin for error is huge (flashbacks etc.).

    Stop complaining. Don't want to buy? Fine. You don't have to tell whole world about this.

    Wait! This ISN'T the mobile port...!?!

    I don't know why they get so excited with the new cities. They ALL look the same when they put the same armco and catch fencing and signage at EVERY track. That's all your eyes see. From the screenshot above, that could be Rome, San Fran, Washington, anything, let alone Havana... Why not have some cheeky Communist propaganda as billboards. (Could work in Shanghai too...)

    It’s all good. This is the type of racing game that a young fan who loves racing can get excited about and play for hours on console. Reminds me of how I felt about Gran Turismo 1 back in the day. It’s probably going to be a very visually tasty experience, fun with a game pad and not aimed at Sim Snobs that some of us have become! (I know who I am, ;))

    Why, oh why do you need to publicate this PILE OF ****?
    Why?
    It’s not even worth playing for 15 minutes.
    And you know it.
    So why even bothering with this SIMCADES ****

    Some ideas from this game could actually have some reasonable impact on the existing racing sim market!
    Because combining existing sim car behaviour(tire model and physics) with the fantasy feature of using normal streets in existing cities (maybe converted to tracks) could be fun to race - hehe when the realistic race tracks in existing racing sims gets too booooring.
    An ancient example of this was the Paris city track for NR2003/GTP mod.
    It was great fun driving around wellknown Arc de Triomphe and Fontaine De La Concorde in a racing game with reasonable sim behaviour.:D

    Paris races were possible - a big load of fun - in Grid Autosport, around the Eiffel Tower and Champs Elysees ;)

    Grid 1 was alot fun back then. But I'm not sure that it will satisfy my interest for Console Racing this time. I do enjoy racing GT Sport and Driveclub, and PC2. But i most admit that the fun factor in general are lacking more and more. I want VR Racing it's the only real good experience, but not that many support it and Not even this one. So is it a technical issue or is it just plain laziness from these money maker companies. I really don't get it. Maybe to many stock owners

    I smiled when I saw this comment. I enjoy racing the Oreca 07 in RF2, and manage to do pretty well in the car and it's good fun for me and I like it.

    However you are absolutely right. Unless you run the car in low drag configuration, it's very difficult to win against other online racers. The top speed advantage is too great and in reality the car should be too slow through the corners if the car is really that low on downforce.

    I was reading a great online article in Race Car Engineering about the ELMS teams testing the Oreca 07, they don't use the low drag/downforce kit anywhere, it just makes the car too unstable. Even at Monza and Spa they used the high downforce kit and then trimmed the wings out.

    At Le Mans they use a bodykit specific to that track so doesn't really count; but I found the article very interesting all the same and just shows that what works in a sim isn't always what happens in real life.

    Anyway, don't wish to go off topic!

    I have raced on the GRID games, will I get this one? Not sure. I enjoy my current batch of sims to much but we'll see. I suppose if you want to just jump into a car and have a race with friends or online it's a good option.

    One of the main problems with the RF2 Oreca is that the HDF package is some 10% down on downforce to the real thing. The LM kit seems to be in the right ballpark; maybe a little high in efficiency. Additionally, and I'm not sure how RF2 manages this, but the loss of downforce in yaw/roll seems to be far too low (haven't been able to check ever since they locked the telemetry channels after I pointed out the problems with the car on their forum).

    It used to be Forza for PC, but as now we have both Motorsport 7 and beautiful Horizon 3 and 4 on PC platform, who would go for this one except for nostalgic reason or if they offer VR?

    Well you clearly never heard of the previous Grid games ? These weren't never advertised as simulations...

    Looking forward to playing those new tracks in VR... in Assetto Corsa.
